I have a Windows Vista Home Premium, AMD Athlom(tm) 64X2 Dual core processor 4000+ 2.00 GB RAM. Okay,my problem is when I download yahoo messenger, it downloads, but when I try to open it a message pops up saying "Yahoo! Messenger has stopped working, Windows can check online for a solution to the problem." However it cannot give me a solution. Ive tried downloading it several times, I run it as administrator, turned off firewalls, turned off protection mode, etc. yet it still will not open.

    a message appear yahoo messenger stop working, I use windows vista

  • Anonymous Mar 01, 2009

    At first, my computer would not let me download the messenger and kept telling me that I needed to retry the download from and administrator account. Very annoying due to the fact that I AM the administrator! I tried over and over again until I got mad and left it all alone for about a week. So I made another attempt to download and the download went fine but then some message came up saying that version, 9.0, had a problem finishing the install and would I like to try an alternative that might install properly instead so I did that and it finished the installation. I even restarted the computer. The messenger came up on the desktop right away and asked for me to sign in as usual. However, no attempt to sign in worked. So how I have the messenger but I cannot use it at all! I have a trip to South America planned for the month of June to fly down and do some work in Paraguay and I cannot connect with my contact there to get any further information regarding this upcoming travel, my job description, where to stay or anything at all! I don't know what is happening! I used it for several years without any huge problem at all. I have followed all of the troubleshooting advice to no avail. Please rectify this as soon as possible! I am worried I might lose this business opportunity in South America!

Yahoo messenger chat windows opening blank...cannot see any messages or whatever am sending. Even offline messages are showing blank. Not allowing me to enter chat rooms as the window is opening all...


new virus infection: it can be fixed through deleting extra key in registry settings. navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER \Software \Microsoft \Windows \CurrentVersion \Internet Settings\ then delete keys other than 0,1,2,3,4. that extra key may be alphabet "I" or something.. (0-4 is IE default internet zone security setting..)

Internet connection is okay. but yahoo messenger


If you wanted to sign in with your Yahoo Messenger in just a second you will need to improve its connection.

The easiest way for you to establish a good connection is to upgrade your Windows Internet Explorer. In case you didn't know Yahoo Messenger rely its connection from Internet Explorer.

The best suggestion to improve the connection of your Yahoo Messenger is to upgrade the Internet Explorer of your computer. Compatible to the system software you are currently using. (Example if your operating system is windows vista, Install Internet Explorer 8 for Windows Vista)
After you upgrade your Internet Explorer, uninstall the yahoo messenger on your computer and then reinstall again. After doing this, restart your computer and try to log in. You will surely see the difference.

These are the link files that you will need to upgrade.
Click it to save.
1. Internet Explorer8 (winXP, winXP-64, winVista, winVista-64) - select your operating system and download IE8
2. Yahoo Messenger 10 - download and install this after you remove previous version of yahoo messenger on your computer

(Note: if you are using different web browser, It doesn't matter. Install Internet Explorer 8 and just don't default it as your web browser)

Yahoo Messenger freezesup and is extremely slow to open. I have a WINDOWS XP Home Edition & the PROCESSOR is.. X86 Family 15 model 2 stepping 7 Genuine Intel~ 2292 Mhz


It may not be YOU that is the delay, but rather internet realities. You may not be aware that your internet requests must go through 15 to 30 servers. Any point along the way could be suspect, including Yahoo traffic.

Yahoo Messenger 9 Vista Installation Problems


Use info below to delete present version completely then if you want to try 9 again and are using Vista go here for help.
http://www.ymessengerblog.com/blog/2008/10/27/installing-90-on-windows-vista/

Messenger 9 for Vista users and XP users with 9, Mess 9 has many unsolved problems and missing features that messenger 8.1 or 8.0 has. Plus now the updated Windows Firewall will not let Messenger download correctly.And is causing 9 users to have problems now.. The only option that might help is going to the control panel and turning off the firewall to download and install then turning it back on.Then click on windows fire wall, Exceptions tab. make sure messenger is checked,if not listed then add it to the list.then click save.
.If the fire wall still causes problems,then revert back to 8.1 or 8.0 these and all versions of messenger can be found here; http://www.freecreed.com/ymsgr-archive.html
You need to remove version 9,or present version, 1st to get another version to work. To remove Messenger version Use Unwise located middle of page of Messenger Folder.Make sure Automatic is checked! then continue to uninstall..Or use control panel ,Vista-program features or XP-add/remove this is the 2nd best way. If you just delete the Yahoo file to remove messenger,you will also lose the shared file that contains things needed on other Yahoo sites. Your contacts are stored online But if you want to save your old messages archives,they are saved on your PC in the messenger file you are about to delete.Go here and copy them to a new folder
Start>my computer>c:drive>program files>yahoo>messenger>profiles>(your ID)>archive>messages
The latest update for Flash Player to #10 Is causing things to not load,Can not log in,or Messenger just crashes upon opening..Use the link below for a download of Flash player # 9.0.124.0 . You have to remove the present flash player,add/remove programs in control panel,Reboot then download from here. http://www.adobe.com/support/flashplayer/downloads.html
